Celebrating our 15th Anniversary! 

Join us as we celebrate the 15th annual Katy Area YMCA Turkey Dash on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 23). 

Whether you’re a veteran runner or participating in your first race, we have an event for you, including a 10K, 5K, 1 Mile Kids Race and 1 Mile Walk/Run. We also have the best post-race party packed with food, giveaways, a photo booth and a kids fun zone. 

If you love to dress up for races, we encourage you to do so! Enter solo or as a group in our 4th annual costume contest with prizes awarded to the “Best Thanksgiving Theme” and “Most Unique Costume”. 

Medals will be awarded to finishers of the kids race and 10k race.

All proceeds from the Katy Area YMCAs Turkey Dash go toward our Annual Campaign and help provide scholarships to programs such as child care, summer camps, swim lessons, sports leagues and assistance to various area outreach programs.
